I found this analysis of gender in comics to be fascinating.  In many categories, I've written against the mainstream pattern, such as having females with super-strength and males with psychic powers.  In a few areas I may have replicated the pattern; with pheromone control and prehensile hair, I could only think of female characters, although I'm sure there are males with pheromones.  Gendered superpowers are fascinating.

I didn't have time to get outside much today, but I saw this tiger swallowtail feeding beside the barrel garden. So I grabbed my camera and took a bunch of pictures. This is one of the best.  Of the caterpillar hosts for this species, I have wild cherry, basswood, ash, and willow; of the favorite nectar plants I have wild cherry, lilac, and milkweed.  We usually see some of these butterflies in summer, but they're not as common as some other species.  They're a personal favorite.  :D
